Destiny’s Child – Say My Name Chord Progression

Voicing refers to how you group, distribute or space the notes within a chord. Like there are many ways to skin a cat, there are many ways to voice a chord. The way you “voice” a chord can often be specific to the genre. To help create the genre’s “sound” or aesthetic. 

In this video, we’ll look at how you can voice 7th chords (and what they are) in a way to produce the rich and warm R&B sound. We use the chord progression from Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name”. One of my favourite R&B chord progressions and a great example. 

Chord Diagrams

The original track uses a guitar playing broken chords. However, the chords present here represent the harmonic values. Or more so how I’ve interpreted them. This is SG Progression #14 in the full pack.
